Stay Organized with an Outdoor Storage Box

Filed Under: Outdoor Furniture

If you have cushioned patio furniture, you may want an outdoor storage box to place your cushions during the off-season, for long periods of inactivity or at other times when harsh weather is present. Large patio storage boxes are great to help keep your cushions clean, dry and looking new while smaller storage boxes are ideal for pool toys, extra towels and garden or BBQ supplies. Whenever you do choose a storage option, it’s important to make sure that it’s the correct size, that the style matches the theme of your patio furniture for design integrity and that it allows for some flow of air to ensure that moisture does not get trapped inside the box.

IMG_4276 I am so excited this year about our planter selection at the showroom! We have something for everyone. Large, small and everything in between. Fiberglass is definitely the way to go. It’s lightweight, will handle extreme hot and cold temperatures, and doesn’t break your back when you decide to move it. Cleaning is a breeze as well, just spray on some simple green, scrub lightly and hose it off with water.

But the question remains “what do I plant in these containers?” The question is simple. Plant what you want. But there are a few things to consider. Pick something that is not only appropriate for the amount of sunlight in the area but try to accentuate some architectural feature of your home. Consider plants that will add contrast to your home’s color scheme.  For example, consider plants such as Vinca, Coleus, Celosa, Marigolds, for your shorter smaller containers and use something in your taller planters that would cascade over the sides as it grows. Verbena, New-Wave Petunias would be my suggestion. Incorporating some tall, ornamental grasses in the center of the larger pots would make a great focal point. Remember that green, tall, straight growing evergreens look fantastic all-year round in larger containers. You can accent them with annuals all year round. Arborvitae evergreens are what we selected for our planters here at the showroom. IMG_4266
